The Nigerian human right activists Aisha Yesufu have publicly declared religious leaders hypocrites and terrible leaders.
This arose when the General overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, William Kumuyi urged his congregants to forgo attacking people’s on power for failing to fulfill their mandate.
In his words, he said:
“We teach that if you’re a genuine believer in [Jesus] Christ, you wouldn’t hate your neighbour. Nor would you disdain those in power because they appear not to be delivering on electoral pledges such that you would go on the rampage, destroying government property or pillaging the public till.”
“We teach a linear life of Christian walk: you can’t be a saint on Sunday and a monster on Monday?”
Reacting to this, Aisha labelled Nigerian religious leaders on behalf of his statement as terrible leaders.
In her words, she said:
“Religious rulers in Nigeria are worse than political rulers. They keep the people enslaved. They also need bad governance to sell cheap miracles and power points”
